The role of Chief Marketing Officer in the staffing industry remains commonly misunderstood and increasingly challenging as marketing evolves from purely an art to very much a data science. Gordon Burnes, Bullhorn’s chief marketing officer, will discuss with fellow CMOs the challenges they face around budget allocation, migrating dollars from traditional channels like job boards toward newer demand-gen activities such as account-based marketing and nurture programs, and will take an in-depth look at how candidate engagement is at the forefront of marketing’s evolution in staffing. This panel will also introduce new research data that attendees can leverage to improve their 2018 marketing outcomes.
